The Flower of Life is one of the oldest symbols known to man and has represented important meaning to many people throughout history. It can be found in the temples, art, and manuscripts of cultures from all over the world. The following are some of the locations in which the Flower of Life symbol has been sighted:

China - The Forbidden City and various temples.
Egypt - The Temple of Osiris in Abydos and at Mount Sinai.
Israel
- Masada
Japan
- Various temples.
India - The Harimandir Sahib (Golden Temple), Hampi, and the temples at Ajanta.
Turkey
- Various old Roman sites.
Italy - Italian art from the 13th century

The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest known examples of the Flower of Life. They are at least over 6,000 years old and may date back to as long ago as 10,500 B.C. or earlier.

The Flower of Life pattern was placed upon the granite siding of the temple. It appears that it had not been carved into the granite and instead may have been burned into the granite or somehow drawn on it with incredible precision.

Christianity has many symbolic connections to the Flower of Life. Most notably, the Seed of Life and components within the Seed of Life, being the Spherical Octahedron, the Vesica Piscis, the Tripod of Life, and the Tree of Life, all have Christian meaning to them. Also the symbol of Metatron's Cube is delineated by a component of the Flower of Life and appears in Christian art.

In Judaism, the symbol of the Tree of Life is studied in reference to the Kabbalah and is a design which is derived from the Seed of Life.

Today the Flower of Life has provided deep spiritual meaning and forms of enlightenment to those who have studied it as sacred geometry. There are groups of people all over the world who derive particular beliefs and forms of meditation based (at least in part) on the Flower of Life. FlowerofLife.org, for example, coordinates workshops at locations all over the world, in which they teach their beliefs, methods, and interpretations of the Flower of Life.
